This a really difficult one to review - On one hand the welcome was great, the room was comfortable and the little extras in and around the room were a real treat - Free wifi, newspaper, little carafe of port, jar of shortbread. On the other, the service at times was shoddy and lots of little things went wrong - Wrong order at breakfast, empty plates left on table for 10 minutes, wifi not working for 24 hours etc. While I'd be petty to get too worried about things in isolation, they start to nag as they stack up.
The room itself was pleasant and comfortable if a little small, the bathroom was excellent but slightly bizarrely, possibly as big as the room itself. The food we had was excellent - It's a quality restaurant - But you have to remember that the hotel is a little isolated and if you decide you want to eat something a bit different or do so in a different atmosphere, you're going to need a taxi. I think location is this hotels weakest point as it's really no near to anything other than the airport! (Do not worry about noise from the airport, it's infrequent and only during the day)
Overall I think we were just a little unlucky with some of the peripheral things, it IS a very nice hotel.
